III. LABEL CLOTHING/UNIFORMS AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES
It is very important that all clothing/school uniforms and supplies be labeled clearly. Here’s how I do mine.
A. Find out How to Do No-sew Cloth/Uniform Labeling
For the complete Tutorial and list of Materials
If you want to keep it simple, you can also get this Fabric Stamp Kit. It’s very easy to use.
B. Use Water-Proof Sticker Labels for the School Supplies
But if you don’t have the time to design, you can always opt for self-laminating write-away labels like this. This looks so cool.
Check out Mabel’s Label (self-laminating labels)
IV. Menu/Snack Planner for Kids
Every family has a different way of menu planning. I have found these posts very helpful and contain free printables that you can use for reference.
